We've gotten past that now. Don't fuel it.

As for STING2's question, I'd definitely consider The Ramones and The Clash to be punk. Today's "punk" bands are not punk bands, no matter how much they want to be considerd as such. There'd be no need to call the 70s punk "classic" anything.

I don't like them much so I haven't really taken the time to classify them

These are amazing. I just watched The Wall for the first time the other day...pretty freaky!

Pink Floyd are great at breathing life into poltical/social commentary. That's what I love about The Wall, and especially The Final Cut.

And best of all, they're always capable of having a few laughs.

I still haven't seen The Wall

Is there anything graphic or blatantly R-rated in there? Because if there is my parents would be like "OMFG NOEZZZ"

Some of it is a little adult, but nothing more disturbing than most of the movies and television out there at the moment. And the big difference: The Wall isn't crap, and it will make you think.

Since the Ramones and the Clash, as well as the Sex Pistols and the other '70s punk bands, were a reaction against all the hard rock bands that were their contemporaries - the same bands that dominate classic rock radio today - I would say they are definitely NOT classic rock.

Another great one. People can say what they will about that album, but Waters' songwriting was near the top of its game.

On a related note, I think I have a dud copy of The Final Cut (bought in 1994/1995 - does anyone know if there were any problems with that set of pressings?) In all the lyrics sites I've seen, the title song starts out as I've written above. Perhaps the American/European version is different to the one we bought in SA? Or maybe it's just a mistake on the behalf of the websites. Anyway, on the CD I have, the title song begins with the end of the lyrics from Southampton Dock:

"And still the dark stain spreads between
Their shoulder blades
A mute reminder of the poppy fields and graves
And when the fight was over
We spent what they had made
But in the bottom of our hearts we felt the final cut"

Rather than "through the fish-eyed lens ... etc." It's strange. I've always wondered why that was.
that is really a segue with no name, IMO, it could be considered part of either song or neither, IMO. On my version the edit is so shitty, "The Final Cut" starts with the word "cut" into the piano.

and i didn't think radiohead could get anymore overrated than they already are, then you come out with a comment like that. Get a grip.
